The Abaco Islands are home to very unique and beautiful plants and animals on both land and sea. The unfortunate truth is much of the fish population is overfished each year, and other marine animals are constantly in danger from boat propellers and human interference. The islands are also at-risk due to pollution and destruction of land. Friends of the Environment is committed to preserving and protecting the Abacos, and one day achieving sustainable living for its wildlife and people. Much of their work is done through educating the public, and they have done this through more than 12,000 classes at 25 schools in the Abacos.
The Reef Ball is one of the organization’s biggest fundraisers every year. This event funds many of the educational programs and community activities offered through Friends of the Environment. This year the Reef Ball will be held in Hope Town on February 10th and in Marsh Harbour on February 24th. Tickets are just $110, and each event includes a silent auction, live auction, dinner and dancing. They also have tickets available for those who just want to dance and enjoy the live music for just $25. The Hope Town Reef Ball will be at the Abaco Inn, a serene beachfront resort. The Marsh Harbour Reef Ball will take place at the waterfront Jib Room restaurant, and will give guests the true local experience. The Reef Ball is a highly anticipated event, and it’s one of the easiest and most fun ways to support Friends of the Environment in their preservation endeavors.
Friends of the Environment has other events throughout the year to allow people to see how their hands-on work is helping the environment. The Lionfish Derby is a contest for boaters to catch as many of the invasive lionfish as they can, in order to save the native fish which are competing for food and being fed on by lionfish. The Turtle Trot is another annual event that helps raise funds and awareness for Friends of the Environment. It’s a 5K run and family walk held on Thanksgiving Day, similar to the Turkey Trots held in the U.S. Friends of the Environment also holds coastal clean ups in April and September to collect trash along the beaches, and log data of what kind of items are picked up and disposed of.
Friends of the Environment has become an important part of the community in the Abaco Islands.
